“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” – Pablo Picasso
One day you will be able to see this post, and the others that I have already posted! I’m having trouble, to say the least. I have been told that it can take weeks to appear in a ‘search’ correctly, with just the Title name. When I do a ‘search’ snipits come up, but not the whole post, pictures are oversized and only one of the many pictures in that entry, text not included, everything out of alignment, not good. It will take more learning and patience. I was also advised to carry on posting, the more entries, the more that will appear. And so I shall continue as I have been doing. As I mentioned in a previous post, the great truth of the Camino, “What is Needed is Provided.” In due time, all will run smoothly!
Now what I really wanted to talk about.
Those of you that have done the Camino, will recognize this iconic ‘Santiago Peregrino.’ He was always in front of The Cathedral, in Santiago de Compostela.
When I retrieved this from my 2010 Camino pictures, I was so surprised at his expression and pointing, accusing finger. What could I have possibly been doing!!! Maybe I wasn’t to take pictures? …I don’t think so, I am sure I saw him often posing for pictures with other Pilgrims. The only other photo of him, I took on the wrong setting, a big blur!
The reason that I was searching for this picture, about the middle of May 2015, I read an article, that he had passed away. I was very sorry, as he was an important part of my Camino experience, and he will be missed, by those returning to Santiago de Compostela. The article also contained a bit about his life, which was interesting. I thought that I had saved it, but now I cannot locate the page. If anyone can help, thank you.
I have also done some other preparing. I ordered from The Confraternity of St. James in London, England, three books/brochures on the Chemin de Le Puy route that I will be taking in France, from Le Puy-en-Velay to St Jean-Pied-de-port. I can’t wait for them to arrive. I expect that should be next week. Yeah! The books are:
Miam-miam-dodo: GR65-GR651, la Voie de Puy 2015
Chemins de Compostella map book
Le Puy to the Pyrenees
